I am using a couple of old windows bases terminals here to run DSL. I managed to reformat the compact flash card inside and I now with succes managed to boot DSL from it.
To get the formatting right I used a small windows utility from HP (it's originally for it's pendrive, but it can also format compact flash). Reason for using this is the disk calibration problem then would otherwise occur.
Anyways.. I got the CF card formatted as one big partion (thats all the tool can do), but I need partitions on it.. and the HP tool can't do that. Does anyone know a easy way to get the partition thing done? Is there any handy tool that can make partitions on a already formatted compact flash card? And get the disk calibration right?
Thanks in advance..
